GARDEN CITY— Allison Neeland finished the day with a score of 103, good for tenth place, at Monday’s Garden City Invite at Buffalo Dunes.
As a team the Panthers tied for seventh place with Lakin with a score of 467. Garden City won the event scoring at 365 while Goodland (384) and Hays (411) rounded out the top three out of eight teams in competition.
Other Great Bend golfers competing at Monday’s event included Halley Sanders who finished with a final score of 112. Taylor Hommertzheim (126), Mikayla Bownes (126), Brooklyn Burkhart (137) and Kaily Griffith (139) also represented GBHS at Monday’s tournament.
“It was a really nice day at Buffalo Dunes, however, the course is being prepared for a women’s professional event this week, so the greens were firm and fast and the rough areas played difficult,” said coach Travis McAtee.
“This was the first time that any of our girls have been on Buffalo Dunes,” he said. “Our two experienced girls handled things alright, but once again, our inexperienced players struggled their first time on a difficult course. Allison once again made a descent showing and Halley was just one stroke from earning a medal.”
The Panthers will compete at Salina South on Monday, September 21.
